Tuesday, Jan. 22nd - MCCR Kids Valentine Cards



Hello! I'm so glad you stopped by today because I have a totally cool V-day card to share with you.

Instead of the traditional reds and pinks, I went with light blue and green for my background card. Why you ask? Because this card is for a boy!! To keep this super simple I cut a double-sided sheet of CS from K&Company to 5 x 7 then I folded it in half. Because this was double-sided, the inside was way too busy and girly for my liking so I cut white CS the same size and glued it to the inside of my card. Then I added my stamped sentiment.



For the character on my card I chose the only one I thought would suit it well and that was CRUSH! I love Finding Nemo and Crush is one of my favorite characters. I cut him out at 3" using the Best of Pixar cart. Crush was cut using all my recollection scraps from my bin and I added a few doodles. TaDa!!!



Hope this gave you a little inspiration for a boy's Valentine's Day card.

Hi Tami! Love love love the card!! So adorable! That's one cartridge that has been on my wish list for a while.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my project during the Anything Goes blog hop. I wish your friend who is starting the adoption process all the luck in the world. It's been a tedious process, but hopefully, my son and DIL will be in the "home stretch" soon!!
